We arrived fairly late in the day without a reservation, La Rana was a gem. The views from the restaurant balcony, overlooking the garden were amazing, what beautiful grounds.

It is the perfect compromise between big, pricey hotels typical for the area and small B&B's which offer few amenities. Here you can have your Wiener Schnitzel and watch colorful... More

Day 4 of our trip was turning out to be LONG! We had booked a White Water Rafting trip that was supposed to have been from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Reality was 9:30 a.m. (by the time the tour guide showed up) to about 4:30 p.m. No one had told us of the 1+ hour trip by bus each... More
